**bleep** doestn't work !!
i placed the card and started my laptop, it said that it detected a card that is not supported.
so even a card bought from hp doesn't work, sucks big time
gues i'll be looking to remove the whitelist or something
sorry guys, was worth a try

Can anyone recommend sources for modifying the bios to eliminate the wlan whitelist. I hate to attempt this, but this bios wlan restriction is draconian. I have a 3x3 dual band wireless router and I want to use the best wlan card for connecting to it.

Ok, so i returned the card I ordered and that did not work in my dv7-6060 and got a refund.
I looked throug the service manual for the dv7 series and found another card that is a lot quicker than the 72mbs broadcom 4313 card tha come stabndard with this laptop , the broadcom 4322 card, pn 504664-002.
Thought to be smarter this time and ask (dutch) tech support if this card will actually work in my laptop, it is in the manual, but i guess that says nothing.
So i contacted tech support and guess what, the didn't know, not for sure. If it is in the manual it will work maybe (their words) but maybe not.
So i asked them. you choose the put a whitlis in the bios of the laptopm so you are sure i will never build in something you do not aprove of, but when i ask you wich ones to use you don't know? the answer was , uuhmmmmm yes i guess so.
it is becomming funny now. but now it is about honor.
i will find a replacement wifi card that works in my laptop, at 300mbs!!

I know it is a gamble, but i 'm thinking about ordering pn 504664-002, only way to find out if it works,is to actually place in the laptop and turn it on.
So i'm thinking about it, the service manual says it should fit.

Well you already know they will take it back if it doesn't.
So it is just your time that would be wasted.
I agree that it would be worth the risk. There is a higher % of success in this situation.
If you decide to get it please let us know if it works.
Also check your BIOS release notes on the driver support page for your notebook to make sure you don't need a certain BIOS version installed that might have added support for the card.
